Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program
The University of West Alabama acknowledges that substance abuse is a major issue touching all aspects of our society as well as university life. The University views the abuse of alcohol and other drugs as harmful to the University community as well as the lives of our faculty, staff, and students. Conscientious behavior and accountability is expected from everyone on campus. The University will address this continuing concern through a campus-wide commitment to appropriate education, prevention, and counseling services. The University recognizes, through this policy and the programs developed to prevent illicit use of drugs and abuse of alcohol, its goal and commitments to a drug-free academic and employment environment, in accordance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendment of 1989 and the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, and the American with Disabilities Act of 1990.
